Combine the simple watercolor techniques to create beautiful cats that leap off the page.

Why cats? Because they're an artist's paradise! On their example, you can learn the numerous nuances of anatomy and composition, learn to see the beauty of line and form, learn to combine different textures from fluffy fur to sharp ears and whiskers.

In this course, Konstantin will show you his approach to capturing the emotions and beauty of cats using watercolor. It’s one thing to depict the objects accurately and completely another to portray the character and mood of your pets. Learn Konstantins's process and infuse your paintings with new life.

"I've walked this road for 30 years and am happy to share these secrets with you" - K. Sterkhov

What is the course about?

This course starts with the unique meditation practice from Konstantin. He began with meditation > 20 years ago, guided by an expert from India. Now it became an essential part of his art practice. It helps to free up the mind, get relaxed and inspired. Many of our students mentioned the extremely positive effect of it and embedded meditation into their painting process.

Konstantin will continue with an overview of the materials you need for this course. Afterward, he gives lessons on essential techniques of mixing the colors and painting different types of cats, so you have a solid foundation moving forward. These may seem like basic techniques, but when combined, they give you everything you need to create those beautiful paintings.

Next, apply all you’ve learned about composition, perspective, and color mixing to create a painting of two beautiful sleeping cats. Konstantin explains how to capture light and shadows to create a truly impressive piece.

Finally, Konstantin shares some final thoughts on finding your own style, as well as tips on how to cope with failures to continuously improve.
